Reviews: One reviewer mentioned she loved that she could whiz around Paris while taking in all the sights and smells she wouldn't have noticed from a bus. Several guests mentioned the route specifically and that it was very rider friendly; traffic and other obstacles were never a problem. Many guests lauded their guides, stating that they were very knowledgeable and clearly love their jobs. Guides often went above and beyond for guests, assisting with currency exchange and offering great photo ops. This tour was especially popular with teens and kids. The one common critique was that the guides are not all locals of Paris--which is common for many Europe sightseeing companies. If you want a guaranteed local, check out one of the other companies on the list. TripAdvisor Rating: 5 stars
